The World We Lost

The world we lost is at our feet,
fighting for time, the time we spent
dilly dallying in the breath of the breeze, to go back and watch it grow.


From the crib to the curb to the basement to the pad to your home. Never let go.
Brother of mine, let’s drink this night and soothe the words that hit our tongues, to look back at our past and see what we’ve done, to bye, lie and cry some more on the day and the way we were taught.
Suffer the will, never lie still.


There is a world at our feet that needs us. Walk the line, do the time, leave the girl, find your mind stabbed and dying in an alley. For we are not the ones that have suffered this day. We are the ones that have found, the world that we have lost.

The World We Lost is a spoken word from the song of the same name by brothers KIME on the album “Almost Better Than Tacos“.
